Assume you are given a non-negative function (s). We would like to construct a plane curve (s) with curvature (s).
Show that such a may be defined by
Hint: Use the fundamental theorem of Calculus to show has a unit speed and then compute dT/ds.
If , using the above datum, construct a formula for (s).
First of all, we need to point out that (s) is the vector whose components are the coordinates of a current point of the curve:
which is defined parametrically. As the parameter (s) is varying let's say from ...
Construction of a Plane Curve is investigated. The solution is detailed and well presented. The response received a rating of "5" from the student who originally posted the question.
